Tokyo ProseLondon-based New Zealander Sam Reed was first snapped up by Samurai Music back in 2008, when Tokyo Prose were still a duo. Three years later came a breakthrough double-pack called Introducing Tokyo Prose.
Since signing to Samurai Music, Tokyo Prose has released music across all 3 Samurai Music Group labels, as well as Hospital Records and Sun & Bass Recordings. Each one of these releases has been a musical stepping stone leading to this – his debut album ‘Presence’.
‘Presence’ marks the culmination of Sam’s musical exploration and evolution thus far and features dazzling solo works as well as a stellar ensemble of collaborative artists that includes Lenzman, Synkro, LSB, DRS, Riya, Fox & more.
‘Presence’ perfectly encapsulates the soulful, emotive vibrancy of the Tokyo Prose sound, now fully formed and refined. It is a sound that has captivated people across the globe since the ‘Introducing Tokyo Prose’ EP in 2011 and one that has left them clamouring for more with each release since.
The Tokyo Prose sound, whilst covering a lot of ground, always seeks to maintain a soulful, deep and polished aesthetic with a firm focus on musicality and groove. Tokyo Prose tunes have found themselves into the crates of artists like Calibre, DJ Marky, Presha, London Elektricity, Lenzman, SpectraSoul, Logistics, and many more.
